June 2016, AIMG Fjalla I course with some of the old crew. Guiding or rolling the dice? I'm the small figure on the left crawling on hands and knees on a dodgy snow bridge over yet another dark blue chasm. Second photo gives an impression. Third photo Matteo, Nicolo, myself and Flo. Two Italians and two Flemings on a two day mission through a mess of crevasses. The goal? See if we're up to standard and mentally capable of dealing with such terrain with Matteo and Ivar as judges. We've all grown and moved in different directions since then. Valuable times with valuable lessons learned. Off to the Balkans tomorrow for another step in the never ending growth process called guiding. #passion . . . #icelandicmountainguides #daysontrails #trekking #hiking #travel #nature #adventure #outdoors #explore #hike #wanderlust #randonnee #rando #wandern #landscape #outdoor #mountains #travelgram #instatravel #traveling #trek #instatrekking #instahiking #instaadventure #wandelen #avontuurlijkereizen #adventuretime #adventures #alpinism at Hvannadalshnúkur

⭐ Fun Fact Friday A lot of things have changed in the last 25 years. The first summer Icelandic Mountain Guides operated in Skaftafell the guides lived in a tent that was owned by one of the founder's mom. 10 pairs of crampons were borrowed from a rescue team in Reykjavík, with the promise that they would return 11 pairs at the end of summer. There were usually two people on shift at the same time, not that we had that many guests in the first year, but mostly so the guides wouldn’t get bored.  #img25years #icelandicmountainguides at Skaftafell - Vatnajökull National Park

⠀ blue_iceland_glacier_tours⠀ ⠀ 💙Marriage Proposal inside the Glacier💙⁣⠀ Taking your wedding pictures at the church is old fashioned we once said (having taken many wedding couples into the glacial terrain for a photo shoot)😏, but a secretly planned marriage proposal upon Europe´s largest glacier is about as romantic as it gets!💖💖💖⁣⠀ From early May (3rd and the 8th), we began sharing a wonderful story on our Facebook page of a young man who, in secret🤫, and with a little help from the Blue Iceland team, planned an out of this world romantic marriage proposal upon Europe´s largest glacier. A diamond ring is, of course, favoured by many, but to propose inside one is truly remarkable - this really does look like the inside of a diamond 💎💎💎 - This spot, about halfway through our Vatnajökull Glacier Walk tour, is called the "Eternal Blue Heaven" - how appropriate is that😍? ⠀ The Blue Iceland team is so proud and grateful to have been part of this beautiful event - Congratulations, and thank you, guys! ⠀ ⁣⠀ Feel free to contact us for more information, link at the bio⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ #Iceland #glacierwalk#icelandnatural #ig_iceland #icelandicmountainguides #ig_europe #europe_gallery #nature_good #hot_shotz #globe_travel #adventurethatislife #modernoutdoorsman #agameoftones #exploretocreate #ig_today #icelandglacier #iggloballife #ic_nature #wildernessculture #ig_photooftheday #ice cave #ig_mood #ic_landscapes #master_shots #travelingourplanet #earthgallery #marriage proposal #blueiceland #chasingemotions #southiceland

¡Feliz lunes! Con la foto de hoy volvemos a Islandia, ya sabeis que es uno de los viajes que más nos ha gustado y nos acercamos al calor de la tierra de fuego y hielo. ☺ • La zona geotermal de Seltun (Krysuvik) es el punto más caliente de Islandia, debido al cruce de placas tectónicas que hay en la isla. Aquí se produce mucha actividad geotermal (y mucha energia para comenzar la semana 😁) que crea pozas de agua hirviendo y vapores de azufre. Huele un poco mal la verdad pero se compensa con la cantidad de colores que puedes observar. • Por cierto hoy en el blog hay nuevo post ➡ Dónde comer barato en Cinque Terre, otra fuente de energia 🤭 (link en la bio 🔁). • ¡Feliz semana! 😘 __________________ • • • • • #islandia #iceland #guidetoiceland #topicelandphoto #inspiredbyiceland #icelandicmountainguides #suitcasetravels #ig_iceland #ig_northern #europe_vacations #topeuropephotos #ig_europe #instagood #travelphotography #wheniniceland #catalanspelmon #viatgersdc #wonderful_places #exploringtheglobe #viajerosporelmundo #buscablogs #icelandscape #lovetotravel #iamtb #mrwonderfulcities at Hafnarfjörður

Fun Fact Friday - Icelandic Mountain Guides are pioneers when it comes to the education of glacier- and mountain guides in Iceland. We realized early that conditions in Iceland and New Zealand were similar, both countries offer hikes on outlet glaciers as well as on snow-covered glaciers. The training system was for that reason adopted from New Zealand and has become the standard in glacier guiding in Iceland today. This photo is from the first course in mountain guiding in 2004 that had an instructor from NZ. From the left, you can see Einar Ísfeld, Einar from Hofsnes, the instructor Nick Cradock, Guðjón Marteinsson, Ívar Finnbogason, Auður Kjartansdóttir, Hjörleifur, and Leifur Örn. Einar Torfi Finnson took the photo. #img25years #icelandicmountainguides at Iceland

Throwback to last summer when thanks to mighty @icelandicmountainguides we had the chance to paddle on a glacier lagoon. Amazing experience! Wondering if it was fun and worth it? Look at the smiles on our faces. All this courtesy to our amazing, funny and knowledgable guides @henrikchlyns and Ang. . . . It is sad that the glaciers are melting extremely fast, as I recently read online, between 50-100 m/year getting smaller. In less than 50 years they will completely disappear according to latest predictions and this should raise an alarm if hasn't been already. Thank you @icelandicmountainguides for this opportunity and sharing with us how big this glacier tongue used to be in the past. Made us thinking about what's happening... . . . . #icelandicmountainguides #kayak #glacier #solheimajokull #solheimajokullglacier #icelandicadventure #iceland2018 #iceland2019 #everydayiceland #ig_iceland #igersiceland #iceland_photography #iloveiceland #exploreiceland #whyiceland #travelphotography #travelers #travelgram #naturephotography #nature #ALjournal at Sólheimajökull

Aaaaand back to the last day of shooting music video in Iceland 🇮🇸🤘 Today we made it to the Falljökull glacier, one of the most amazing places we've ever seen. Anyone seen Interstellar? Yup, they did scenes here as well. Actually, one of the teams behind the glacier safety for the Interstellar-team, @icelandicmountainguides, also did glacier safety for us - thanks a bunch, guys! 🙏 Follow our story for lots of crazy glacier shots! at Falljökull Glacier

Ever since Einar Torfi, one of the founding members, guided the first expedition across the icecap in 1996, the Greenland ice cap has been an important part of the work we do at Icelandic Mountain Guides. Since then over a dozen expedition have successfully crossed the ice cap led by our trusted guides, Leifur Örn, Maxime Poncet, Jón Yngvi and others. Einar Torfi recently required the international title of a Polar Guide and is actually right at this moment doing a crossing over the Greenland ice cap. We wish him a safe journey. #img25years #icelandicmountainguides at Greenland

The final 8 days of my life as a Glacier Guide - for @IcelandicMountainGuides has came to an end. This post is dedicated to my best mates Chris & Till for having my back since the very first day I arrived in Iceland; I can’t imagine how life would be like. Not forgetting my dear friends Ása & Kallia too, for all the times they have helped me out. Carrying all the joy with me from every single person I’ve met over the past week at Skaftafell; I shall make my way back to Sunny Singapore. Earlier, on the 20th of February 2018 I embarked on a journey/career focused on my passion for the great outdoors. 15 months later, my love for it still hasn’t changed. Along the way, I’ve made mistakes just as much I’ve learnt to correct myself from repeating them. I’ve stepped on the toes of many people around me, just as I have learnt to forgive; to make peace and not war. With every end, comes a new beginning. To everyone that I’ve crossed paths with, I thank you for every moment we have had, good/bad. Stay safe and see y’all another time. #IcelandicMountainGuides at Vatnajökull National Park

Fun Fact Friday - Back in the early days of the company, we also started offering tours to Greenland. The first trips were backpacking adventures on the east coast of the country. We still do those tours in the summer and have added on other fun experiences, such as cross-country skiing to Ammassalik island. In this picture, Leifur Örn is guiding one of the cross-country skiing tours, and he is wearing the first branded sweater that was created for the company. Sveinn Helgi designed the logo. #img25years #icelandicmountainguides at Greenland

12 days of glacier guiding at Vatnajökull National Park including 2 days of mountaineering on Kristínartindar (1126m, Normal Route) & Hrútfjallstindar (1852m, South Face - Original Route); what a time to be alive. And yet still, happiness is short-lived and it should never be taken for granted! Once again, here’s another post with every single person who has stood up to my bullsh*t and spent time with me over the Glaciers & into the Mountains! #IcelandicMountainGuides at Vatnajökull National Park

Fun Fact Friday - Skaftafell is where it all started 25 years ago. Our founders spent a lot of time there and this area holds a special place in their hearts and in the history of the company. In this picture, Leifur, one of our expert expeditioners, just finished an Easter trip in 1992 where he and Hjörleifur climbed Miðfellstind via a new route. They also climbed Fjallkirkjan and then skied down Hvannadalshnúkur, Iceland's highest peak, to the parking lot of Hafrafell. Unfortunately, because the glacier has receded so much over the years, it is no longer possible to ski into the parking of Hafrafell today. #img25years #icelandicmountainguides at Skaftafell, Austur-Skaftafellssysla, Iceland
